It seems you lean towards the single killer because you have decided Tabram was killed by JtR?
Maybe it's easier to accept the soldiers theory if we reject Tabram as a Ripper killing. I just don't agree about there being "plenty of reasons" for having her as a Ripper victim.

There's no cause to see it as being aimed at anyone, it's about the knife, not a person. I was assuming you knew what whittling was. Never mind, nothing was meant by it.




So are we ignoring the soldiers, or could this single killer have been a soldier, just not two soldiers?
Hi wick
Yes my suspect does where a peaked cap, but what does it have to do with what we’re talking about?

RE the soldiers: no not ignoring them.. I said your idea was certainly possible. Also yes the killer could be the single soldier. There’s nothing that negates the soldier from being the ripper.
